The Lakers took the court Tuesday vs. the Clippers on a high from Monday's epic comeback, and with some excitement following the deal to acquire Rui Hachimura from Washington. But the Clippers came into the game feeling pretty good about themselves, too, and are getting healthy fast. And for the 10th straight time, the LAC beat the Lakers, burying them with a barrage of first half three-pointers. Final score, 133-115. The Lakers got 46 from LeBron James (who now has notched a 40 point game against every team in the league), but save a tidy 15 from Thomas Bryant didn't get much help.

Meanwhile, the Clippers again exposed the challenges faced by the shorthanded Lakers defending a team with that much wing size, something a player like Hachimura should help address (even if he's not arriving with the rep of a great defender).

What else will help? How about Anthony Davis?

ESPN's Dave McMenamin reported after the game that Davis, who has missed 5 1/2 weeks with a stress reaction in his foot, will return to action Wednesday vs. San Antonio, assuming nothing goes wrong in pregame warmups. This should be a huge boost for the Lakers, even as Davis plays a few games with a minutes restriction. They've managed to stay afloat with him on the sidelines, but time is running out to actually start gaining ground. And with a brutal road trip staring the Lakers in the face, an earlier-than-expected return for A.D. is tremendous news.

Finally, GM Rob Pelinka introduced Hachimura before Tuesday's game, and was asked about the possibility of more moves. Including, maybe, giving up those two first rounders the Lakers currently control and can move. His answer could frustrate many fans. It certainly frustrated the hosts.

SEGMENT 3: What does Pelinka need to see before he'll move those two first rounders?
